Somehow this seems totally appropriate. Open enrollment sort of closes at midnight, but the Obamacare site, Heathcare.gov was down for eight hours last night. In other words the open enrollment period is ending the way it began.
According to administration Spokesman Aaron Albright:
…the website is typically down for maintenance during the period from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. EDT, and that as a result of the technical problems the site was down for close to four additional hours on Monday morning….
Talk about a sign of things to come. The site is supposedly back up and running.
